Hortonworks Processes SQL in Memory on Hadoop.itbusinessedge.com, April 5, 2017.
Despite the hype around NoSQL, SQL is still the go-to query language for relational databases and other emerging novel database technologies. One of the fastest growing use case for SQL is its application on top of hadoop clusters. Hortonworks unveiled this use case of SQL through Apache Hive 2.0 with Live Long Process (LLP) capabilities that runs within memory. Hortonworks HDP 2.6 offers all the advantages of SQL running on a hadoop distribution platform that can handle order of magnitude more data. Hive 2.0 LLP runs in-memory so any query against the data can now be processed in sub-second of time.

Hadoop: the rise of the modern data lake platform.Information-age.com, April 5, 2017.
At a recent Gartner Data & Analytics Summit in Sydney, research director Nick Heudecker said that 70% of hadoop deployments are likely to fail in delivering the predicted revenue in 2017. The reason for this is that organizations are finding it difficult to find the required engineering skills and big data experience required to implement big data solutions on hadoop stack.Hadoop ecosystem has a bag of carpentry tools that organizations can leverage but require a highly skilled construction team to implement a complete big data solution. Thus, companies are moving to modern data lake platforms where they just need to furnish the hadoop data lake with data and can easily leverage the power of Hadoop and Spark technologies for analytics.
